The drag legend Heklina, one of San Francisco’s most well known drag queens, is being roasted by some fantastic people on Revry in The Drag Roast of Heklina. In this hilarious comedy feature she is the subject of some fabulously crafted insults that will have you laughing out loud. The panel of roasters is made up of some Drag Race favorites including Alaska and Jinkx Monsoon as well as some really great drag stars Jackie Beat( as the emceee), Bob the Drag Queen, Sister Roma, Julie Brown, and Peaches Christ.
Jackie Beat kicks off the roast perfectly and throughout each of the roasters adds their flavor to the proceedings. My favorite of the performers was Jinkx Monsoon, who not only roasted her fellow panelists and laughed at her own material, which I thought was so much fun, and she even had a bit with Alaska that involved a carrot and horse noises. I was laughing so hard throughout her portion and I wasn’t the only one. The other panelists and Heklina were all laughing as Jinkx roasted all of them with a smile. Peaches Christ also had me in stitches with her added in asides to explain some of her jokes. She also was able to roast Heklina with so much ease and levity that she made the show for me. Her closing was also just so sweet and showed the depth of her love and friendship with Heklina.
The Roast of Heklina was an exceptional comedy show and made my entire day when I sat down to watch it. I was laughing so hard and couldn’t keep myself from smiling as each of the performers dug into each other. How Heklina managed to keep herself from losing it more often I have no idea. This show is just so much fun and it was the perfect way to highlight this exceptional icon, who has influenced the LGBTQ community through her own parody shows, Mother, and the landmark The Oasis. You can enjoy all of this hilarity yourself by watching The Drag Roast of Heklina on Revry today!
